    What a wonderful place! We had afternoon tea and it was brilliant. They seated us in front of a lovley fireplace on comfy sofas and the staff were nice and attentive, and also knew when to give us some space. We were so happy with the experience here I would highly recommend it to anyone!

    My wife and I went to dinner at Lyttletons after a reception at the US Ambassadors residence. We arrived a little after 8.00pm and were immediately shown to our table by a very attentive maitre d'y. We ordered the mushroom risotto followed by the sea bream washed down with a glass of house claret. The risotto was exceptional and the sea bream was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. I would strongly recommend this restaurant although the atmosphere is a little low key.

    My friend and I took a visitor from Brisbane to afternoon tea at The Lyttleton Restaurant at The Stafford. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tea (together with a glass of champagne) was superb. The little open sandwiches on rye bread were just right and the scones and cakes absolutely delicious. We couldn't finish the cakes but were given a delightful box to take away. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wanted a special location in London for afternoon tea. The service was excellent and the ambience awesome. I would highly recommend.

    I booked afternoon tea to celebrate my sister's birthday. We both enjoyed the tea very much and the whole experience. This is my second visit for afternoon tea and I would definitely come again.

    Ho-hum high tea. Food was not bad, not great. Ditto the service. Certainly a shame that a relatively high end place like the Stafford can't do better. We've had much better for lower price in America (Phoenix, AZ, to be precise).
